Over the summer, work crews are building two retaining walls in front of Southlake Regional Health Centre.
Work takes place in two areas near the hospital.
Starting mid-June for about six to eight weeks, the crews in work area 1 are building a 110-meter-long(361-foot-long) retaining wall west of the Davis Drive entrance to the hospital, in front of “Emergency”. They’ll be topping the pre-cast block wall with a hand railing. Description: The retaining wall will be 110 metres, located west of the Davis Drive entrance (in front of emergency) and made from pre-cast blocks topped with a hand railing.
Also starting mid-June for about two months, the crews in work area 2 are building a 46-metre-long (150 foot-long) concrete retaining wall with a decorative finish, just east of the Davis Drive entrance and north of the visitor parking lot.
All entrances to the hospital will remain open. Traffic flows one-way westbound across the front of the hospital during the work, but you can’t park in the work areas.
You can still drop off or pick up passengers at the emergency entrance and York Region Transit buses operating along the 54 Bayview, 55 / 55B Davis Drive and 58A Leslie via Mount Albert routes continue to serve the stop in front of the hospital.
Some noise and dust may result from the work.
